really enjoyed our visit just missed the mushy peas on the gentlemans afternoon tea other than that all ok
Beautiful interior, perfect for special occasions.
Very lovely place to relax and have fun
We had a lovely meal , great service and the staff were lovely . We were a large party with different meals and afternoon teas , all the food was delicious xx
The scone was dry and more like a biscuit, samwhiches were ok, the sweet deserts as part of the afternoon tea wasn’t nice. The waitress was lovely but I wouldn’t come back again
Food took a long time to arrive but everyone seemed happy with it when it did. Sweet potato fries were a particular favourite. Good selection of cakes available. Staff very pleasant. Tom very helpful.
We had a fabulous time and Ida was great. Thank you !
We attended for an 18th birthday, we had great seating and service ... the afternoon tea was lovely and we felt like we had such a special afternoon. Our waistress was extremely helpful, we would absolutely recommend the tea rooms, thankyou so much
Amazing food and venue as always!!! We absolutely love Richmond and would eat there every day if I could!!!!!! However, Two people ordered the chicken Cesar salad, both had to send it back because it was not white but had pink areas on it, this is the second time this has happened when dining with you and I think it’s because you steam the chicken, I would suggest not steaming it because it causes concern with how pink it is where both our dishes were sent back and had to be replaced, when they were replaced the chicken was white and tasted really nice but having the pink on the first one made us a bit cautious :) As always amazing other than the chicken and great value!!! See you again soon!!!!!!
There’s no variety for sandwiches for vegetarians
Everytime I visit Richmond's I always leave with a smile on my face and a stomach full of great food. Edi served our table and was amazing from start to finish. Everything was catered for and the atmosphere was so magical and fun I never wanted to leave. Keep up the good work guys ❤️
I had pre-booked a table for 1:30 for my sisters hen party. We were left waiting for our table for nearly half an hour. Once seated we did not get any service to order our drinks. I had pre booked our food but that didnt arrive until 45 mins later. The sandwiches in the tea were very dry and clotted cream for the scones did not taste right. We ordered some sides but they were sent to a different table and did not arrive until we were finished. I was really disappointed with the service especially as i had arranged this as a suprise for my sister.
I didn't realise but it is 8 years since I came to the tearooms when it was in the other building. I will not be leaving it so long again. We all had a lovely time were treated well by the friendly and helpful staff.Food, ambience all really good. Not so sure about the ability of the small teapot to pour but this was quickly remedied when we were given a straw and shown how to clear the spout. we will be coming back much sooner!
We booked a month in advance as a group of 5. We were seated downstairs on a crammed in table for 6, which meant one of our party was stuck on the end. We were so crammed in with the tables in front and behind us that we could barely get into the seats. We asked to move tables for these reasons as had seen a number of round tables/booths on our way to our table but were told because we had booked we were allocated this table and all others were held for walk ins - quite frustrating to book in advance and receive a worse table! The food was nice, sandwiches in particular were lovely and fresh. It was difficult to get any of the servers attention once we were seated. This would have been a much nicer experience on a better table!
Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Would’ve been nice to have been told exactly which cakes were on the Richmond Tea. However the food was lovely and the staff went the extra mile to sing happy birthday to my 6 year old!
Love this place so a couple of minor niggles can be lived with. Pre-ordered food as over 10 in the group for a lunch out of the office. Two items were not as requested - one lived with but if you ask for no sauce or dressing it would have been appreciated if that had happened. Meal had to be sent back to get one without dressing so one person sat watching everyone else eating until correct meal arrived. Bit of a shame.
Quality food in great surroundings
Service was terrible. Forgot some of our orders on seprate occasions, tables left dirty next to us yet people were sat waiting because they were told no tables available. Such a shame, it has so much potential but did not deliver.
The venue is pretty and original, food was delish.,Lovely scones.
Food was fine, but tables are too small! I also felt more service was allocated to larger tables - we had to wait a while to order. Also, we sat on a table with a sofa that was broken. Fairy lights weren't working either so it was a little dark. Expected a little better to be honest!
Beautiful restaurant with lovely decor. We all had afternoon tea which was lovely 😊
It was ok. Just ok.
We all had a lovely time, we enjoyed both Richmond and gentleman’s afternoon teas.?It was our first visit but it won’t be the last
